in a position where they would have to leench. when i moved to san francisco, i moved here because i felt this was a really special city, it had a cool about it, and an interesting nature, that was unlike anything else. i'm seeing recently that the rents, the way that they are, the makeup of the city is changing, and it's becoming something that it's losing its luster, in being the artistic community that it is. i'm worried that this proposal is setting up a slippery slope for other housing -- or property owners to kind of get their foot in the door and force people out, that will change the makeup of the city, not just the elderly or disabled or the poor, but again for the people that kind of make it run, that make it interesting. so one other thing i would ask you to think about through our property owners that are up here to speak on this behalf i think we understand your polite, we want to live in the city. but if you had to foreclose on your home, and then join the renters market, you would be in just a rough situation as everybody else because a two bedroom home going for $4,000 in

>> san francisco is home to some of the most innovative companies of the 21st century. this pioneering and forward looking spirit is alive in san francisco government as well. the new headquarters of the san francisco public utilities commission at a5 25 golden gate avenue is more than just a 13-story building and office ablation. instead, city leaders, departments and project managers join forces with local architectural firms ked to build one of the greatest office buildings in america. that's more than a building. that's a living system. ♪ ♪ when san francisco first bought this land in 1999, it was home to a state office building. >> this was an old eight-story brown building the state owned and the workers' comp people were in that building. it was an old dee correctvth it building for decades. when i was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building
got jealous for a minute there, some of the members of the san francisco boys chorus are getting more pictures than i am. as you look around this room, think about the events that you have been to in the city hall in this one rotunda or one of the offices and so many wonderful weddings and so many celebrations and so many heart rending speeches and yes, some sad occasions too. all a part of our community and our beautiful city. as you look around this room tonight, what a diverse combination we have. it makes me smile, but it probably doesn't make nebraska smile. we live in a richly diverse city and our elected officials represent it and our events here represent it and the tree lighting should represent it and indeed it does, we call it the tree of hope. and every year we get messages from all over the country and all over the world that are put on origamis and put on this very unique, unusual tree. >> there are many cities that have holiday trees, but no one has the tree of hope. it was started by an organization and now i will have the chance to introduce you to that organization's
to be converted to condos per year here in san francisco. but the data that we show is that over the last 10 years, that actually 5,956 units have been converted over the last 10 years. this is double of what we've seen in the 90's. a number of this of course is because of the allowances or exceptions for two-unit t.i.c.s that we have here in san francisco. i'm really just confused by these numbers, particularly between 2005 and 2006. in 2005, 306 units were converted to condominiums, in 2006, it was over double, 727 units. now, when we have a lottery process of 200, plus a number of two-unit t.i.c.s that converted every year, i mean that spike was really alarming to me and it peaked at 845 units in 2008. and i'm just curious as to how that happened, the patterns around that, what you have seen at dpw. >> frankly, that's my fault. i made the process a lot more efficient. my staff made the process a lot more efficient. i was hired in 2005 and there was a horrendous backlog and we made the process more efficient. it doesn't reflect any change in the number of applicants. actually, the number of appl

and texture and color of san francisco. so, all of us can stop looking at the death of george moscone and start to put him firmly in our hearts so we can see the likes of him in new community leaders, young artists, queer and colorful, innovators and students, all inside our magnificently and uniquely diverse and never-changing city. san francisco will never be what it was, nothing in life will be. but as i heard recently, we are always nostalgic for a time that never was and often wanting to avoid a future that is inevitable. will change in san francisco as in everywhere is inevitable. and change can be beautiful. we are all of us the agents of change. as george and harvey were. each one of us is the story teller of our lives and the lives of the people we've lost. and that wasn't always the case, as willie mentioned. but because of the likes of george and harvey and so many others, all the way to our mayor ed lee, all of us have voice. all of us can tell the story. so, let's crowd source this thing. let's tell the real stories of george and harvey. stories of their hard work and pol
. and the reason is the city attorney is very clear that the voters of san francisco are the arrest orbiters arbitraries of the -- san francisco and it's on it's face value when you bhfer you take votes right away from certain conconstituentcy to none elected officials it problematic and secondly it can be open to litigation and the purpose of this is to protect focus it will counties and the taxpayers in san francisco and this does not have any profession to the rate pairs or taxpayers of san francisco for any litigation that may come about as as a result of this amendment and i urge you to consider that before you pass this amendment and lastly, it doesn't involve all of the key stakeholders in this conversation. the city of california, has determined that the economic value of restoring hetch hetchy would be $6 billion annually to the people of california and therefore, i think that is 6 billion reasons why they are key stakeholders in this process and so, we would urge you would amend or revise or have more conversation truly about this issue by requiring that instead of providing veto

? and make it all of san francisco and anticipate that when it runs out you are going to overlay on san francisco and that all the 628 area, when that runs out, you will be able to do the same thing. if this is just sort of a red herring. i mean it feels a little weird the way it's presented. if it's just a red herring and they are saying look, we have to get these two ideas out to the public because we can't just go with one idea. then i think the geographic overlay, the straight geographic overlay is acceptable, how to not our preference. because we do feel there is a marketing advantage. there is an identity in the 415. and also have to remember that identity has morphed over the years. 415 used to stretch to palo alto and the peninsula. certainly if we did just the geographic overlay as the geography is today, it would be distinguisheding as an old resident or new resident and that in in and of itself might have cache about it. so marketing people spin it however they want, but splitting san francisco in half is ridiculous. so this was sort of to address both proposals and say fix
